In January (2012), I embarked on another 5-day juice fast with my friend and partner in crime, Arvind Devalia. In this blog post, I recount the highlights of my fast, and how it was so different from my first 5-day juice fast recounted here.
Then I will tell you about my decision to bring a juicing intensive program to my beloved green juicing community and how you can participate.
FYI: This is a long, epic and massive blog post with pictures, video, and a LOT of information around juice fasting and green juicing. Let’s get to it! [Read more…] about My 5-Day Juice Fast Experience PLUS A Green Juicing Intensive Program
It is a beautiful warm night here in Queenstown, New Zealand where I write this today. Lake Wakatipu must be the largely undiscovered piece of heaven on earth. Once you see it, you shall never forget it. Mother Nature beckons you here with every breeze, every rustle and every ripple and with the fresh New Zealand air and stunning gorgeous views, you come alive. Mother Nature rules here, in complete serenity, and she makes you feel grateful – even privileged – for being able to experience her beauty.
Coming alive and taking excellent care of your mind, body and heart has been the theme of Prolific Living all year long. It is a fitting theme because it reflects precisely my own priorities and thus, my passions. This year, I focused on this primary pillar of all smart habits: our health, both vibrant physical health and strong mental health.
From understanding and managing your travel fears and anxieties, to the 8 pillars of inner motivation, to the 10-minute daily invigoration routines, the focus was to refresh, renew, rejuvenate and re-set the clock on your mental and physical health and to become more vigilant and less complacent as you journey through your fabulous life.
Today, I am bringing you Prolific Living’s last product just before we bid 2011 goodbye and welcome 2012.
Green juicing is the one “food” that you add to your diet that actually helps you subtract all the waste from your body, leaving you feeling rejuvenated, renewed, and revitalized.
When I stumbled upon green juicing over four years ago, it was a novel idea. I clearly remember my initial excitement; I had decided to become the world’s biggest baddest green juicing woman! I remember telling my husband that I am going to juice every vegetable and fruit in sight and lose all that extra weight – 20 pounds or 9 kilograms – and most of all, that I was on a quest to regain my lost vitality and zest for life.
I was able to do all of that with green juicing plus so much more and so can you! Seriously, I used to think that green juicing and the stunning benefits is all hype and marketing. Not so, my darling reader, and I am living and breathing proof every day!
These are my fantastic outcomes from green juicing habit:
– Weight loss of 20 pounds
– A fantastic digestive system
– Heaps of energy
– Renewed body love
– Mental clarity
– Flatter stomach
– Feeling beautiful
– Glowing hair and skin
– Fabulous immune system
– Deciphering my body’s cues and signals
– Better, happier moods
– Less menstrual cramps
You can experience all all of these benefits too. Green juicing does not discriminate. If you do it, you benefit immensely!
When I first started, I thought I could just throw some favorite fruits and vegetables down the chute of my juicer and be all set. Ummm. Not exactly!
Remember, you absolutely need a juicer if you are going to be making fresh green juices, and investing in a quality juicer will turn out to be one of your best decisions. I highly recommend and adore the Green Star Elite – a fantastic, high quality, top-notch brand of juicer.
Today, I have turned this experience of learning everything on my own through trial and error and costly mistakes into a complete product that offers you a step-by-step green juicing guide with the only 10 recipes you will ever need, plus two special bonuses. If you do not have hours and hours of time to research and find answers and learn about green juicing, grab a copy of this guide at the introductory price and cultivate this smart habit in your life today.
Let this be your true new year present for yourself. You probably don’t need another sweater or pair of shoes but a fantastic digestive system, a brilliant immune system and heaps more energy, now that is a great way to start the new year.

September 2011 was my 4-year anniversary since my first green juice, and I wanted to celebrate the occasion and what better way to celebrate than to share the gift of green juicing and all its benefits with my darling readers, you?
In December 2011, I wrote a comprehensive guide to green juicing, with a juice fast guide plus
the only 10 recipes you will ever need for your green juicing journey!
Quite simply, green juicing changed the way I look at my body, my health and my overall well-being.
Remember that in order to start green juicing, you need a good juicer, and I highly recommend the Green Star Elite Juicer by Tribest. This is an investment that will pay for itself in your health a thousand times over!
In the video above, I share with you my exciting green juicing journey, including the lapses, the ups and downs, the changes in my body and in my life, which are all natural and part of the process and through it all, how and why I have always come back to green juicing and consider it an integral part of a health-conscious life.
As part of this big celebration, I wanted to help you start your own green juicing journey. Even though you will find a lot of information on the subject here on the blog, I think with smart habits, sometimes, we need reminders and bite size nuggets that is delivered to us regularly to nudge us in the right direction. Green juicing is a smart habit but a tough one to maintain.
Momentum for smart habits comes and goes after the initial excitement wanes. What do you do to keep it going strong? How do you stay on top of your smart habits?
Well, for one, I say join this totally-free-and-fabulous exclusive newsletter where I bring you bite-size nuggets of juicing knowledge, experience, and how-to every other week for a year (oh yes, I’ve been writing and writing fresh, JUICY, new content for days on end for us!)
Here’s to working together to keep the momentum going strong because our bodies deserve the best care and love that we can give them. And here’s to green juicing, baby!
I admit I fell out of my green juicing habit.
Falling out of good habits is inevitable in life. Staying flawlessly on track with an unattainable goal is stuff for the athletes and superstars. I have fallen out of my health habits countless times. I have never given myself a break for it either and in hindsight, what a waste of energy. All that matters is what we do next. We stop, we regress, we back paddle in life all the time. Big deal. We simply need to get back into the rhythm. We simply have to start over, again and again and yet again. It is the perseverance mindset that comes to the rescue.
With that mindset, I found my way back into juicing recently. As usual, I am shocked how I let such a brilliant habit slip into the background of my life. One taste from my home made green juice the other day and my body felt instantly rejuvenated. It is no wonder my first Favorite Green Juicing Recipes has been the most popular post! To kick-starting the juicing habit again with a huge dose of inspiration, I made a video of my green juicing process and tips for us.
About the Video: We made the video completely unrehearsed and impromptu; I only had so many vegetables for juicing and I really wanted to make a video sharing my indelible love of green juices in order to tempt you into this habit which can bring enormous benefits to your health and your life if you only let it!
If you are going to be juicing, you need a reliable, top notch juicer, and it will be your BEST investment. I highly recommend the Green Star Elite juicer by Tribest.
